Lorraine Koffski

May 22, 1935 - December 4, 2017

Tribute

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of ‘Nana’ Lorraine Koffski. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Lorraine was the glue that held our large, loving family together. She was a Nana to everyone. Full of life, laughter and light; she was an absolutely incredible woman. She was a stay-at-home Mom who didn’t always stay home! She and Sam spent many days and nights in their plane, boats and motor homes over the years. They traveled to amazing locations, immersing themselves in different cultures, and always making friends wherever they went. People always gravitated to her. Lorraine was the life of the party, the ultimate joke teller (usually with the wrong punch line). When you were with Lorraine you always had a smile on your face, and a drink in your hand. She loved animals with all her heart. She loved to gamble, held a master bowler certificate; was a dedicated BC Lions fan, and the best bread baker you have ever met! Everyone always fought over the crust! Kim’s many daycare children brought a lot of happiness and joy to her life over the years. There was a ritual of going for coffee and treats everyday; ice cream cones at 10am in the morning – only at Nana’s!

 

Lorraine had great faith, and a wonderful parish family. It gives us great comfort to know that she is looking over us, and finally breathing easy. A special thanks goes out to Dr. Szabo, Dr. Masuda and the wonderful nursing staff at Cowichan District Hospital.

Husband Sam Koffski, Daughter Kim Langkammer (Ken), Sons Les Koffski (Joanne), Sid Koffski (Jennifer), and Gregory Koffski (predeceased).

I am so sorry for your loss of Lorraine she was a great woman. She was one of my Mom’s best friends. I have many happy memories of my youth with Lorraine, Sam Kim, Sid. Camping near Ladysmith, going to the PNE in the RV. Visiting their home for BBQS and always being welcomed by the whole family. I am sorry I can not attend the memorial service but it is too costly to fly out from Edmonton, Alberta. David Carter my brother and I send our love to the whole family. We remember how great Lorraine was from singing , entertaining, dinner parties. I am sure Lorraine is saying Hello to my Mom Doreen and they are having a good time together with everyone in Heaven.
